Title: Olds Cutlass (from Drive-In Movie Ads)
Description: A couple is cruising in their new Cutlass admiring their purchase. The announcer comments on the fastback design. They stop at a newsstand. The husband comments on the optional swivel seats before exiting. The wife exits and gets in the driver's seat because she wants to drive. It ends zooming into a p&p with local car dealer info. In actuality this is a drive-in movie commercial. Not sure if it was ever used for television.
This clip is from a compilation of drive-in intermission films found here on Internet Archives in the Drive-In Movie Ads section. Most are color but there are a few black & whites because of their quality or uniqueness.
PLEASE NOTE: These clips have been modified from the originals. They have been carefully cropped to remove excess black frame while preserving as much of the actual image as possible. I've adjusted the brightness/contrast, and color correction to the best of my ability. Magenta tinted films were especially difficult. These clips are also louder than the originals. Volume has been increased. In some cases the audio track was separated and remixed in an audio editor to enhance the sound. The enhanced audio files are available for upload if requested.

Those swivel bucket seats are bad ass.

I find it interesting that the commercial has outlived the car company itself...
...I wonder if any of the people who made this commercial ever imagined we would be watching it all these years later?
